    I cannot connect to the WFC because it needs the ip adress and the connection fails

    Click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode
    type in ipconfigpress enter you will see all of your internet connection details type in your default gateway ip adress into your internet search should read something like

    Your IP Address should be thought more as your computer's phone number than it's address, if you have multiple connections, you have multiple IPs if you dont have a connection, you dont have an IP.

    Without further delay If you need your computers IP address:
    This will work in almost every case, it simply requests the website's server to tell you what your IP is.
    I have included a link to make things easier.

    If you are in a network and need your computers local address.
    Hold the windows button (looks like the windows banner, usually between left ctrl and left alt) and press 'R'.

    A box will display, and type in "cmd.exe" and hit enter.
    The 'command prompt' will display, a black screen with white lettering.
    Simply type in ipconfig. This gives information on all your internet connections.

    Look for the line "IPv4 Address".
    If you need to find the IP of a current connection you can type (from the command prompt) "netstat".

    This will give you all your current connections.
    To identify a specific one, the easiest way is to run it before you establish the connection then again afterwards.
    Change IP Addresses

    Your IP address is a series of numbers that identify your specific computer on the Internet.
    If, for some reason, you want to change your IP address, you can do so without going into the command prompt.Click "Start," "Control Panel," "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center."

    Click "Change adapter settings."
    Right-click the network you want to change and click "Properties."

    Click the "Networking" tab.

    Put a check either next to Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) or Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click "Properties."

    Click the radio button next to Obtain an IP Address Automatically if you want Windows to assign one, or click "Use the following IP address" to manually change it.

    Enter the requested information and click "OK."

    How do i resolve DNS server issues

    typically your router should pick that up automagically from your ISP. If the power failure reset your router to factory (unlikely) you will need to login to it and reset those settings. from a computer connected to that router run a dos console (type cmd in win 7 or 8 start menu or xp run menu) then run ipconfig, write down the gateway address and use internet explorer to browse to that address (type the address in the address bar). login to the router and look for the ISP settings and such. your ISP should be able to help with those settings. that failing use (google) as a DNS server in your computer IP configuration.

    Can't connect bluray to WBR1310

    If the IP address is fixed in the BlueRay player, I would reboot the router or modem, which will reassign IP addresses. If one is in use, such as the Blue-Ray, whichever device is currently using it will get assigned a new IP address, assuming it too is not a fixed IP address.

    Someone is using my ip address

    There are a couple of very valid ways that the same IP addresses might appear to be in use by several different computers. If the voting software using only your IP address to check for voting abuse, then it's not doing as good a job as it should be.

    Two scenarios come to mind immediately: routers and bad IP detection.
    As I've discussed before, a router allows several computers to share a single internet connection. One side effect of doing so is that all the computers that are sharing that connection appear on the internet as having the same IP address. The internet IP address actually belongs to the router, and it manages the routing the appropriate data to and from the appropriate computer behind it.
    If you're in a home or small business that uses a router to share an internet connection, then any of the other computers could have voted and appeared as having come from the same IP address your computer would.
    If you're connecting from a larger facility, say a school or corporation, the same issue can arise. Many facilities connect their internal network to the internet through a set of routers. A company of several thousand might appear as only a handful of IP addresses on the internet. If someone else within the company voted, it's quite possible that you might appear as the same IP address when you attempt to vote later.
    "Using just the IP address to counter voter fraud and other types of abuse is common because it's easy." And then there's AOL.
    When last I checked, I believe AOL puts all of its subscribers behind the equivalent of a collection of routers. Therefore when you as an AOL user connect to a web site you may be using the same IP address as some other AOL subscriber who came before you.

    There's another problem that could be at play here as well.
    If you're behind a router, your IP address is an IP address on your local network, not the internet. Most consumer routers use the 192.168.1.x range. In fact, most will start assigning IP addresses at, then, then 3 and so on.
    As a result there are thousands of machines out there at IP address on their local network.
    If the voting abuse software attempts to use the IP address of the machine rather than the IP address of the machine's connection to the web site, then it'll just be wrong. The first person with an IP of might be able to vote, but all that follow would be seen as coming from the same address.
    It's very unlikely, but it is one additional way that the voting abuse detection scheme might fail.

    Using just the IP address to counter voter fraud and other types of abuse is common because it's easy. As you can see, that often has the unintended side-effect of blocking more than just a single abuser. Unfortunately blocking an individual computer for these types of accesses is difficult - at least doing so in a way that isn't trivial to circumvent is difficult. The most common alternate approach is to require registration and login to vote, which naturally reduces the number of voters as people are reluctant to jump through the additional hoops.
